Converse is the story of a sneaker that started on the court and moved to the stage and street. We're a company ready for change and that's who we hire: the most malleable, the most innovative, and the most creative. Our clothes and sneakers have been worn by rebels, rockers, rappers, artists, thinkers, and individuals. So that's why we hire individuals. So we're speaking the same language.

Design

Art School Finally Pays Off

That art school word 'aesthetic' comes in handy again. The look and feel of Converse gets funneled through this crew. From Events to Online to Retail to Photography to Messaging, Brand Design is the artistic hand on the color wheel. If you're looking for a motley band of artists and thinkers, then look no further. We all know what "aesthetic" means, too. We just don't use it because it's cheesy.
